It is only fitting that Czech design dynamo, Jakub Berdych of Studio Qubus, was invited to join forces with the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art to curate the gallery store. Before it was transformed into DOX, the Holesovice (Prague 7) art center was originally a factory that dated back to the early 1900s. In 2005, the site was redesigned by Kroupa Architects, a studio known for its modern, functionalist architecture and DOX opened in 2008. The 1000 square foot, all white, minimalist design store carries the best of Czech glass, porcelain and jewelry products. The shop also features the work of young Czech designers and frequently organizes in-store exhibitions to showcase new work. /
